The IvyHonors Program is a selective honors program available at the following Ivy Tech campuses: Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Lake County and Valparaiso.
Since its inception in 2012, the Honors Program has a proven record of helping students reach their academic and transfer goals. In fact, the majority of honors program graduates have been admitted to their dream four-year school and many have gone on to pursue graduate studies.
A talented transfer and advising team at Ivy Tech will help support you as a competitive transfer student. Over 60 top U.S. universities and liberal arts colleges have expressed interest in accepting our honors graduates.
Students in the IvyHonors program have been accepted to dozens of public and private colleges and universities not only in Indiana, but all across the country. Some of these schools include the University of Pennsylvania, Butler University, Purdue University, Hanover College, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Smith College and more. View the full list.
In addition to benefitting from our concierge-model of advisement and transfer support, you will learn with top Ivy Tech faculty and other high-ability students in small, engaging classes. Honors courses focus on dialogue, reflection, and critical thinking. Our virtual courses provide additional scheduling flexibility and also help you build critical 21st century skills.
Limited IvyHonors Program Scholarships are also available. Once admitted into the IvyHonors Program, students can then apply to be considered for an honors scholarship.

The Honors Program Experience
Honors students enter into a tight-knit community of like-minded peers where they are provided with extra support. This allows them to successfully transfer and flourish at a four-year university. You see this community in the honors lounge, during class discussions, in honors council meetings, as well as during social events such as movie night.

Dedicated honors advisors work one-on-one with students, guiding them through course selection, a transfer plan, and financial aid options. Most Ivy Tech Honors students earn a Global Studies Certificate and participate in travel opportunities both in and outside the United States.
